Long Term View: Nuplex Industries Ltd



In this series of posts I am going to be looking at stocks listed on the NZX in relation to their returns to shareholders over the life of their listing -what shareholders would now see in their back pockets if they had invested in the company IPO. The calculation of returns includes dividends and tax credits.

Nuplex Industries Ltd [NPX.NZ] has been one of the worst performing stocks listed on the NZX in terms of returns to shareholders since its listing in Feb 1967 (we will start at an adjusted $2.50c per share from available 1995 data to make our comparison) $2.95c in net dividends (excluding the period 1967-1994. No data can be easily found for dividends) and 30% more in tax credits (see chart above) a 3:2 share split in 1993 and a 7:1 rights issue in April 2009 gives NPX a slightly more than minus 600% return (see chart below for the share price percentage gain against the average of all NZX indexes - does not include dividends, tax credits and the share split in its calculation) over the nearly 17 year listing of NPX (the period between 1967 and 1992 is excluded because no shareprice or dividend details are available so the return will be higher than stated here), an approximate annual net return just over minus 35%.

This is approximately a 300% worse return when compared to the average of all NZX indexes.
